Medical Interpreter

When patients don’t speak the same language as their medical provider, the experience can be frustrating, and frightening.

However, with Onslow's adoption of the MARTTI System, language no longer has to be a barrier to the best possible care. MARTTI is an acronym for My Accessible Real Time Trusted Interpreter, a proprietary remote video interpretation platform. Through a video internet connection, the patient and physician connect to the Language Access Network’s MARTTI for access to a live interpreter.

Once connected, MARTTI then allows practitioners and patients to communicate through the aid of a trained and certified interpreter. This professional not only interprets the spoken word for the patient, but picks up on nonverbal communication as well. Because the interpreter is trained in medical terminology, it ensures clear and accurate communication between the health professional and the patient.
